It's new pattern time! This one is the Ambrelle Shrug, one of those lovely knitted things that the muggle would never guess is so simple. How simple is it? It's a rectangle - with ribbing at both ends, and then you seam it up according to instructions to make a perfect comfy, cozy shrug.
Ambrelle is one of those pieces that goes perfect with just about anything. Here she wears it with a simple blouse and jeans. But it's just as at home over a slip of a dress. And the yarn is this delicious merino/silk/cashmere blend that is like butter in your knitting hands AND against your skin. It's a win-win.
The cable lace pattern is fun to knit and is provided in written and charted instruction form. Just grab your favorite sport or heavy fingering yarn and you're good to go.
